Greyling Modern Dry Gin 750ml
The nose is mildly floral, but with juniper in the center. The floral notes make you think this gin could go in a contemporary direction (a la Modern Dry Gin) but the juniper is clearly there.
The taste fades nicely from aspect to aspect, botanical to botanical. Each major ingredient makes itself known in the flavor. Initially, sharp juniper hits you, but quickly makes way for a floral note followed by a nice pop of citrus zest. A little more piquant than some gin’s citrus. Almost grapefruit with an acidic tang, and lemon adding a bit of sweetness. There seems to be some coriander in there too with a hint of spice rounding out the flavor. The tail when the finish kicks in is where you can pick out some floral, jammy notes. Lavender, but almost intimating at something bigger, brighter and more fruity. Then it’s fading gently leaving sharp juniper and a bit of heat on the edges of the mouth.
